Tigers | Joe Nathan fans side

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:37:19 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joe Nathan struck out the side in the ninth inning to record the save Thursday, July 24. He was consistently hitting 93 and 94 mph with his fastball.

Fantasy Tip: This refreshing skill probably was partially fueled by the acquisition of Joakim Soria, an alternative for saves. Nathan isn't in the clear yet, but this is a big statement toward him locking down the job. He's lucky Brad Ausmus already has given him a long leash this season.

Tigers | GM talks trade interests

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:28:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said acquiring a shortstop and a left-handing-hitting outfielder are not high on the team's priority list Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Consider this an endorsement for J.D. Martinez and Eugenio Suarez. Martinez has hit his way into being a viable mixed league option. Suarez is a fringe AL-only starter, at best.

Tigers | Joe Nathan remains closer

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:40:09 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joe Nathan will remain the closer, and RP Joakim Soria, recently acquired from the Texas Rangers, will work in a setup role, according to general manager Dave Dombrowski.

Fantasy Tip: Nathan's hold on the job is precariously, and he can ill-afford any further blown saves with a proven closer in Soria on the roster and waiting in the wings.

Tigers | Joakim Soria acquired

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:02:55 -0700

The Texas Rangers traded RP Joakim Soria to the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, July 23, according to a source. The Rangers will get RP Corey Knebel, and minor-league P Jake Thompson. The deal is pending physicals.

Fantasy Tip: The bullpen in Detroit has been a dumpster fire this season, and the team would likely be well ahead in the Central Division race if not for its shortcomings. It's uncertain yet whether Soria will step into closer duties in Motown, but fantasy owners of Joe Nathan have to dislike this deal tremendously. Nathan has struggled with plenty of blown saves, and it wouldn't be shocking to see Soria step right into ninth-inning duties.

Tigers | Joel Hanrahan still a longshot

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 17:16:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joel Hanrahan (elbow) is still considered a longshot to pitch this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hanrahan signed with the team for one season, and it appears they might not get any return on that investment. Fantasy owners have long since ignored him.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 17:15:35 -0700

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 17:14:41 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Drew VerHagen (side) will have an MRI on his lower left side, trainer Kevin Rand said Tuesday, July 22. The test might also lead to a bone scan.

Tigers | Justin Verlander makes adjustment

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 05:37:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander looked at some pictures from earlier in his career and from this season to see if he was changing the grip on the baseball before his start Monday, July 21. He noticed a difference in his arm action and immediately made an adjustment while warming up. He allowed three runs and struck out five in 6 2/3 innings to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks. "It felt like I was able to throw the way I want," Verlander said. "Really, (today was) the first time all year that I've been able to locate my fastball as well as I would like to."

Fantasy Tip: This could be good news moving forward.
